Sermons about The Eucharist
The Lord's Supper. What an amazing moment in time (when Jesus celebrated "the last supper" with His disciples) that infuses meaning into all of history. It is a mystery - there is no way around it. Yet we ought not ignore Biblical mysteries, nor should we seek to eradicate mystery by claiming to have all the answers, rather we should stand (and bow) in awe of them. After listening to this audio, hopefully we will have a better foundation upon which we can ask questions as we seek to handle this gift Jesus has given The Church well.
It is known by a variety of names: The Lord's Supper...Communion...Holy Communion...The Eucharist...The Breaking of Bread…etc. Different parts of the body of Christ on earth all mean the same (basically) thing by those various titles. The reference point is a gift from God. So…why the confusion? Why the different names? What happens during this time? Who is it for? What should be our focus during it? Hopefully a clearer picture will develop and some answers will follow during this series. Yet one thing is clear, if we do not start with grace…we are already starting on the wrong foot. By the way, we do some of the oddest things when it comes to meals do we not?
